Is it necessary to have a X-Ray apparatus in Pediatric Primary
Care Clinic ? If doctor is well trained and good experiences,
the answer is NO.
It is difficult to take good X-Rays in child. For instance, Chest
X-Ray is shot at deep inspiration phase. But child can not hold
the respiration. So by chance.
The point to take a good X-Ray is the fixation of child's body
by mother or father and a staff. At least two persons are
needed to fix an infant.

Genzo Shimadzu, the founder of SHIMAZU Co., and in
cooperation with his younger brother, succeeded taking
roentgenograms for the first time in Japan.
